Magnolia Hotel is not going to knock your socks off. It's sterile but clean. And most importantly they have air conditioning which is essential in the stifiling humidity of the Li River area. The location is good. It's a very short walk from the pier where you disembark if you're arriving via the Li River cruise from Guilin. It's also...

Many 4 & 5 star hotels in China could learn from the service offered by this little unclassified hotel.

We contacted...

We hit Yangshuo a couple of days before a flood submerged a lot of the town, including the Magnolia Hotel where we stayed. Needless to say, it made for one of the most memorable times during our "cylconic" tour of Southern China. When we saw the waters rising it seemed our whole trip was going to be ruined but in...

We stayed here in summer 2007. The hotel has a great location just off West St. It is a really great deal for the price. That being said there is some downsides. It uses solar water heating and thus later in the day sometimes runs out of hot water. The internet is also very slow and the service is not...

The Magnolia Hotel was a pleasant surprise following a beautiful day trip down the Li River. This was my first trip to China and I found this area to be a nice blend of East and West; a wonderful, restful stop before venturing further inland. The hotel is clean, bright and tastefully decorated. The room was comfortable; the bathroom was...

We booked the Magnolia after reading all the praising reviews, but we were disappointed from the hotel. First of all, when we just arrived the hotel with our guide, they were quite rude and didn't want to speak with us before we paid one night stay + 100 y for a key deposit (???). After that we had to climb...

Chose this hotel based on recommendations from this site. Jasmine, as mentioned previously, was great. She called me in advance to advise the boat cruises weren't running and gave me a number of options to choose from with regards to traveling from Guilin to Yangshuo. Other staff were pleasant and helped when required, but certainly didn't go out of their...

This was not my first trip to Yangshuo but my first try at this place. It offers very good quality for the price. Rooms are clean, the hotel location is good. The only downside with the great location is the noise level. I don't think you can escape this. The front desk was very useful. Had a taxi to pick...
